Hello Pavel,

I'd say that this package is almost ready for packaging (just a minor issue with BuildRequires).

Are you planning to build it for EPEL releases, if so which? I've only tested it Fedora.

Following is my review:

Comment 2 Pavel Valena 2015-12-03 09:49:04 EST
Hi Christos,

regarding those BuildRequires:
 * These are false positives. There is nothing against mentioned 
in the Guidelines[1]. Explicit requirement ensures building it with cruby.

> Are you planning to build it for EPEL releases, if so which?
 * I am going to build it only for Fedora.

Thank you for your review.

Comment 3 Christos Triantafyllidis 2015-12-03 10:04:08 EST
Hello Pavel,

My comment was based on that (from the ruby guidelines you linked):
- There should not be Requires: ruby(release), unless you want to explicitly specify Ruby version compatibility. Automatically generated dependency on RubyGems (Requires: ruby(rubygems)) is enough. 

And given that you don't specify any version I don't think they are needed.

Do we need to have this limited to specific ruby implementation? In that case I think the ruby(release) can still be removed as other implementations do provide it:
$ rpm -q --provides jruby | grep "ruby(release)"
ruby(release) = 1.8.7
ruby(release) = 1.9.3

Comment 4 Pavel Valena 2015-12-03 11:34:53 EST
Hi Christos,

> - There should not be Requires: ruby(release), unless you want to explicitly
 * I have thought the same first, but this is meant for 'Requires', not 'BuildRequires'. Ensuring cruby during the build, not runtime.

Next, when we keep 'BuildRequires: ruby', we should keep 'BuildRequires: ruby(release)'.

Comment 5 Christos Triantafyllidis 2015-12-03 12:04:31 EST
Hello Pavel,

I'm covered with this explanation thus I'll APPROVE the package.

You are right about ruby and ruby(release) given that ruby(release) is provided by ruby-libs and not ruby.
